I know there are many here who are worried that we are giving the nomination to Bernie and that would somehow be a disaster.
There is also a ton of Angst about a contested convention.

Balderdash and Poppycock. Bernie is not that selfish. If he goes into the convention leading with somewhere around 30-35% of the delegates there will have to be a compromise candidate. That candidate will almost have to be not his main challenger at that point.

If it is much above that then it will be trickier. If it is 40% plus then he should be the nominee. We all will just have to work our asses off.

But a contested convention may just be the only way we can unite the party. Bernie understands that as well as anyone.

Until that time let the contest continue and let the voters settle it.
